Slaves of Socorro by John Flanagan (Brotherband Chronicles #4)
Publication Date: June 7, 2014
Hal and his fellow Herons have returned home to Skandia after defeating the pirate captain Zavac and reclaiming Skandia’s most prized artifact, the Andomal. With their honor restored, the Herons turn to a new mission: tracking down an old rival turned bitter enemy. Tursgud—leader of the Shark Brotherband and Hal’s constant opponent—has turned from a bullying youth into a pirate and slave trader. After Tursgud captures twelve Araluen villagers to sell as slaves, the Heron crew sails into action . . . with the help of one of Araluen’s finest Rangers!
John Flanagan is amazing. I just told my brother last night (he and I share the same love for his books) and we spent the evening recapping on the Brotherband Chronicles books and the Ranger’s Apprentice series. I can’t wait to see what happens in this story and I’m so glad that he’s continuing with these great books! The MG world is better with him. :)
